Athletes ... They're Just Like Us!

Especially when they tweet their bizarre and mundane thoughts

ON DEC. 9, for the fifth year in a row, SI.com is running its list of the top 100 Twitter follows in sports (SI.com/social-100-2015). This edition also includes the top 10 Facebook and Instagram accounts, as well as the 10 best Vines of the year. As athletes become more accessible on social media, they also reveal what they really think about when they're away from the field. Look at these tweets from six athletes who made the 2015 Social 100, and see if you can figure out who sent them.
